Deadliest Jersey Posted by Matt

Leading up to the premier of the new season of Deadliest Catch, Discovery aired a marathon of the previous seasons. While I don’t have an exact number, I’m certain Kari caught at least 20 episodes over the course of two days. The show is very compelling, and KG had just recently gotten “hooked” on the show. The new season kicked off with two new episodes, and airs every Tuesday. Already a huge fan of the show, I was really excited when Kari and I saw the Aleutian Ballad docked in Ketchikan, Alaska on our Honeymoon.

Want to own a piece of history? The “Yankee’s Curse jersey” is being auctioned off on eBay. In case you aren’t familiar with the story behind this sordid piece of baseball history, check out this article. Basically a Red Sox fan working on the construction of the new Yankee Stadium, smuggled in and buried a David Ortiz jersey which later halted construction while the contraband was searched for.

Y: The Last Man has been taking up most of my reading time. Its a great series by Brian K Vaughn one of the writers of hit TV series Lost. Its a post apocalyptic drama about Yorik Brown, potentially the last man on earth and survivor of a catastrophic plague that has wiped out everyone with Y chromosome. It a great what-if story and highlights the relationships between Yorick and his guardians sworn to protect him as they travel cross country and eventually over seas looking for his fiance’ while the team works to find a cure for the plague.

One of the most anticipated Wii games this side of Super Smash Brothers is in stores this Sunday. Mario Kart Wii will be tearing into stores this weekend. Featuring new tracks, improved graphics, and the revolutionary Wii controls, this game is sure to make Nintendo a small fortune. One of the cool things about this incarnation of the game is that it comes shipped with a plastic steering wheel shell that you can use with your Wiimote to drive your cart.

Two of my favorite things are colliding when DC vs Mortal Kombat his shelves later this year. A bizzare team-up of comic book characters from the DC comics universe collide with Sub-Zero, Scorpion, and the rest of the Kombat Krew. While this game has been taken all kind of abuse from fanboys across the web, I think this game will be fantastic. Imagine Superman vs Raiden or Batman vs Liu Kang. I can’t wait, I say release it now!!

In case you’ve been living under a rock, you might know about Star Wars: The Clone Wars, a re imagining of the classic cartoon of the same name done completely digital. Images and a really rough looking trailer are starting to surface.  If this is anyway half as cool as the cartoon, this is going to be GREAT!

Speaking of Fanboys,  there is an interesting looking movie set to release this summer appropriately titled, Fanboys.   It follows a group of Star Wars obsessed geeks traveling cross country hoping to steal a copy of The Phantom Menance shortly before the release.  This movie has taken some heat lately because it was re edited by the produces, but thats not going to stop me from seeing this! Check out the trailer it looks pretty sweet.

Chilling in Chicago Posted by Matt

Last weekend I traveled to Chicago with Aaron and a handful of my VS playing friends from St. Louis to compete in the Chicago VS Mega Weekend. I was one of 80+ players that had traveled to the Windy City to compete for a Playstation 3, a Nintendo Wii, and tons of other VS related prizes. People traveled as far as California to compete. I didn’t do so hot myself finishing 4-5 in the day one tournament, and 2-5 in the tournament on day two. My teammates had mixed results, finishing as high as 13th in the day two tournament. The weekend was a total blast, everyone had a great time and took home some free swag. On the way up to Chicago we stopped off and visited with Joe and Hilary, they provided us lodging for two nights. You can see some of the pictures of downtown Rossville on my Flickr. Or you can see some of the pictures from the Chicago tournaments here.

Aaron and I have been playing through Army of Two. Its a fun little game from EA where you take on the role of one of two private contract soldiers. The game is tailor-made for co-operative play and features many game mechanics capitalizing on having a friend there to help you out. One of the revolutionary new features is the inclusion of the “cover system.” Each player has an aggro meter that measures how much the enemy AI players hate you. The more damage you inflict the more your aggro meter will go up. This will cause the other player who is lower on the aggro chart to become invisible to the enemy setting up flanking and other combat maneuvers. The game is a blast and although it supposedly satires private military, the satire doesn’t really come across and it just seems to glamorize private contract military. The story is good enough, and the game play is a blast, its especially fun to upgrade your weapons and “bling” them out. At one point Aaron was carrying around a 4-foot gold plated sniper rifle, it was pretty hilarious. Check it out its on Xbox 360, and hopefully soon on PC.

I typically don’t go for romantic comedies, unless there are Zombies involved (Shaun of the Dead), but Run Fat Boy Run actually looks good. Maybe its the fact Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead) stars in it, and its directed by David Schwimmer that has peaked my interest.

Check out the video for Handlebars by Denver based hip-hop group Flobots. This group is cool because they seem to appeal to a broader audience than just the hip-hop crowd. I’m not sure if its because they include horns and strings in their live act, or if its the political messages they talk about with their music. Needless to say they’re buzzing up the Indie stations and you will be hearing these guys soon if not already.

Sometimes you see something on the web and it just blows your mind.  Such is the case with Sillof’s Steampunk Star Wars characters.  The way he customizes the original figures to fit into a completely different genre is just amazing.  If Steampunk doesn’t tickle your fancy check out Sillof’s World War 2 re imagining.   I love Han Solo as a 1942 Air Force captain complete with bomber jacket. This guy is a genius.
